If you’re planning on backpacking anytime in the near future, whether in your own backyard from the house to the tree with dog urine all over it or across the globe three times until you go insane, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind and supplies you need to get to stay prepared. From backpacking backpacks to ample food supplies, there are many different types of things you’ll require before you set off on that journey to the center of the Earth, which I don’t recommend doing because it’s really hot down there and you’ll likely die before you even get through the Earth’s crust, but I digress.
There are few things in this world that a backpacker will need more than the SEVENTY2 backpacking survival pack. One item I can think of is a hammock, which can serve as your best friend, lover, and companion on those long journeys, and the other is a magic pen that turns into a guard dog, which I discuss more in-depth in my ultimate backpacking supply checklist.
So, you want to backpack. The first thing you’ll need to backpack is, in fact, a backpack. Otherwise it’s just called walking. Whether you’re just starting out or a veteran looking for a new backpack, it can be kind of daunting to find that perfect piece of back gear to accompany you on your trip.
